WHEN YOU’RE NOT QUITE SURE ABOUT BELTING.
This week, we’ve veered away from our usual VA HQ setting and replaced it with the beautiful Saint Rémy de Provence surroundings. Our trip is all about La Maison du Village and the finishing touches. Planning and photographing La Maison du Village is the reason we are really here, though that hasn’t stopped us from jam packing our suitcases with new fashion pieces to prance in.
And the recurring staple in each of our cases? The Belted Dress.
They are the perfect effortless dress for summer days.
How To Belt It
* Finding a high-waisted tie that sinches us in all the right places is a must.
Belt details that sit higher up the waist are much more flattering.
* Delicate V-neck or buttoned collars both drew our attention.
They are timeless, yet both reflect different styles.
V-necks display a dainty, feminine approach whilst the button up collars present a little more formal.
* Tie-waist dresses bring structure to our top-halves, revealing our silhouette.
Therefore, long and pleated bottom-bottom halves work best, ensuring extra movement.
* Despite us falling head over heels for the girl in our graphic above, we’ve realised big puffy sleeves are just not for us.
A more fitted sleeve is where it’s at these days.
Dressing – it’s all in the details.
